, republicans. and meetteorites strike a town in russia's ural mountains. let's get the update from lisa ferguson standing buy out in los angeles. >> hey, bill good morning, everyone. president obama is on the road but first off he is hosting the italian president who is ending his term in. this will serve as a fairrewell. he will speak at hyde park academy about his state of the union address and his plans to strengthen the middle class. he is spending time until palm city, florida. the president is pushing his plan for universal pre-school this week. but that could run into road blocks thanks to republican lawmakers who say early learning programs are not effective. >> that's despite an increasing amount of evidence on the benefits of childhood education programs, including higher high school graduation rates and reduced teen pregnancy and crime. some research actually suggests every single dollar invested in pre-kinder garden programs saves $7 down the road because those kids are less likely to involve themselves in risky behave. last year, only about
states. the two the started it, united states and russia, have the largest arsenal. everyone has dozens. the united states and russia have 95% of the weapons. then you get united kingdom, france, china, india, pakistan, each with somewhere between 100 and 200 nuclear-weapons. north korea has a couple of weapons, maybe somewhere between six and 12. every time the test the use up some of their plutonium. the negotiated agreement in the 1990's with the nine states. host: what is the infrastructure that is needed to be a real threat? guest: that is a very quick -- a very good question. north korea cannot deliver this weapon. it is probably too bulky to put on a plane or missile. there is not much they can do with it. baby fat exit. but that is about it. most countries get a clear weapons and that is to stop other countries to stop from attacking them. it is one of the reasons nuclear-weapons have not been used in 60 years, despite the united states being in major wars. no one has used a nuclear weapon and that is because it not have much military value. you are seeing this change, particula
relationship changed and evolved with russia during the obama administration? what are the positives and negatives? guest: i think what has happened with russia, putin, who is the leader of russia, who came from the k.g.b., who came from the old soviet union, in my estimation is going back to his bad old ways. there was great hope for democracy in russia and nominally there are still elections and there's democracy but putin has consolidated power and has made it very difficult for democrats in russia to be able to have democratic government. and that's the big worry. and of course when you look at what russia has done and what china has done in the united nations, they have wielded their veto power and made it difficult for us to slap sanctions on iran, to help prevent iran from having a nuclear weapon. they have not been good players. and so i've seen russian democracy slide backwards. as long as putin is there, and it's really a shame because i think the russian people really want democracy. and i think putin is trying to be like the old communist leaders that we all remember, khr
next year in russia, to medal. john meyer, i want to bring you in, as a collaborator with lindsay on her blog, i assume you are close to her and her people, not to suggest you have had an opportunity this soon to talk to anybody whose connected to her, but do you know anything more about how bad this injury is and what this means for this season, and maybe more importantly next season, olympic season. >> well, this is speculation, obviously. but it looked as your earlier contributor said, it looked like the knee buckled. and she has a severe knee injury. so that would take her out of the rest of the world cup season. and obviously the world championships. i want to make it clear world champion ships happen every two years. so it's a major event as opposed to world cup which is a seasonal event, if you will. so basically, she will go have her knee reconstruction, and then she will have to go through a very difficult rehab, and the clock starts ticking right now for her bid to defend her gold medal in the downhill at the olympics. now, that's not to say she can't do it. if you remem

. it was a lost opportunity of strengthening he could have done in the region. for china, iran, and russia and pakistan, we need more allies in that region and not to isolate ourselves. to leave afghanistan too quickly will put them in the arms of other countries. we would miss an opportunity to grow a real partnership over there. i definitely think maybe that's not military, maybe state department stuff instead. [indiscernible] i feel like cutting banks' stock will limit our ability to have that impact. when we talk about the american economy and american workers and values, it's good for us to be good to other places and that helps us here at home too.

, but in terms of impact, russia hasn't been reset. the arab spring, we're hardly ahead of that curve. iran is closer to a nuclear weapon. relations with israel are anything but smooth all these years later, 4 1/2 years later. but she leaves with about a 80% approval rating. >> steve: she also has that stain on her resume of benghazi. during the question and answer sequence at the council of foreign relations yesterday, she said, we know leadership has its cost that ambassador chris stevens and the other three americans understood that danger and, quote, we must always strive to be worthy of that honor. >> gretchen: secretary of state coming in, john kerry, has a huge job. we got so many problems all around the world. we've got the explosion in turkey this morning. don't know if that's a terrorist attack. we got syria, the mali and al-qaeda growing in northern africa. not to mention the nuclear problems in iran and north korea and you could go on and on and on. so huge job. let's look back on hillary clinton's time as secretary of state. i guess we have a little fun with this [ laughter ]

does pick up from iraq you have saudi arabia, russia, other major oil producing countries that will be declining as far as their production is concerned. so this is only going to make up for that decline that we see in other major countries. the third big reason is demand is going to increase at a much higher rate than supply is. you look at china for example, per capita we consume 20 barrels per year in the united states. china is at 2. that's 1.2 billion people. imagine fit goes to 3 or 4 barrels a year. the increase in demand is going to out strip supply many times over. gregg: same thing with india. >> the reason i somewhat disagree with that, right there is great increasing demand. the whole his traoeft oil market has been that technological improvements that completely out stripped the demand for oil and we are seeing that now. there is a revolution going on because of fracking, because of or sopbt tal drilling technologies, that you look at what is happening in north today coat tarbgnorth dakota. every time we drill we find more oil there. i think the future is pret

didn't solve the middle east. look at russia, going down the tubes fast. look at the arab spring countries, in complete turmoil. and also china. not particularly good. you can go down the list and on some of the hard issues, those really traditional foreign policy international policy issues. some critics would say she didn't accomplish much of anything and she leaves john kerry a pretty fragile world. other people would say, no, she actually injected into the conversation, changed the conversation about international policy. what she talked about and what she followed through on were the issues of women's development, economic development, children, family and increasing the conversation as she would put it with people around the world, not just talking to governments, but beginning this two-way conversation with people all over the world. so that debate is going to go on for a long time. >> we're watching secretary of state hillary clinton say farewell to some of the 69,000 state department employees. john king and gloria borger are here in the studio with me. she has now a rec
